    Cannot create a snapshot with 2TB virtual disk?

    gregsn Enthusiast

      I have a virtual file server with a 2TB virtual disk (vmdk).  When I try to create a snapshot of the system (in order to back it up), I get the following error:


      File <unspecified filename> is larger than the maximum size supported by the datastore '<unspecified datastore>.


      The datastore which the file server is located on is formatted with VMFS 5.54 with 1MB block size.  It is a 12TB datastore with about 6TB free.
